Russian media and players already saying this is a "walk in the park" for the Russians. Finland show them it's not!

HYVÄ SUOMI!

All of you are allowed to ridicule me if Finland doesn't get to final but I don't care.
THIS. Quit whining. We can compete with Russia and have good chance to win the whole tournament. Suomi Finland Perkele!!!!!!!

Finland beat Norway, so this game is walkover

Russia takes this one.

Not at all, we have a young and pretty unexperienced team, I have no idea what to expect this time.

Czech has played very well so far in the tournament and even Jagr looks like his prime, this is worrying. ;-)

About the game, been hearing that russians are allready talking about the final.

Its good that we are allways getting that underdog-position. It fits for us. We were underdogs even against the norway, everyone expecting norway to win because of their good team effort so far, forgetting that finland had that same good effort whole tournament

Like we are in every tournament, never concerned as medal contender and then finnish at the medals in the end


Its good that its Russia agianst us in semis, not for example Canada. We allways get extra morale against Russians, like Russians got their extra morale against Canada.

True. In fact i think when we had Aravirta as headcoach it didn't feel like we needed go give up a goal to start playing, but with him the playstyle and players were a alot different. I kind of like the current situation more though, it feels like we don't give up our lead as easy as we used to even though the scoring used to be a little bit better (not saying it ever was great though).

Well, peace. :-)

I believe it's about 300 years ago we fought the Russians. The war was actually a turning point for Russia, the start of a super power. You should be thankful.

Now Sweden invade Russia with furniture ;-) IKEA

Russia agrees to the best stimulus. But I thought that only the Czechs and Canadians. Not for the Finns.

Well I do think you are our best stimulus with Sweden rivalry ofcourse. Against sweden we probably feel like playing against our annoying brother, and against you we feel like beating a giant or something when we win.
